Ref was standing 10 feet from there and he was about to blow the play down (he raised his arm with the whistle) and once he saw who hit it first he put it away.

The lineman was right on top of the play too. Did they show a better angle anywhere else? I didn't see it and only went by the refs reaction.
I saw the replay.

I was watching the Isles feed, they made a point to re-show it six times from multiple angles out of outrage at the call. They finally ended up showing an angle that was basically perpendicular to the play. Silfv touched it just before Vis got his stick there. At normal speed from the broadcast angle, it looks really close.
